I recently returned from my fourth trip to Mana Island Resort and Spa. It is not simply the resort that keeps me wanting to go back. It is so much more than that! The resort is great, with good choice of accommodation styles, and wonderful attentive staff. I would in particular like to thank "Jim" from reception; he went out of his way to assist my friends and I this stay! It is such a friendly place!!
What I appreciate about Mana Island is its beauty, it would be hard to find a more beautiful island in the world!! Sure, there are other visually, stunning islands in Fiji and in other places, but Mana stands apart for several reasons. It is bigger in size than most in Fiji, but small enough to get around. I love the fact that one can have the traditional experience there, and mingle with the locals, and visit their homes. There are two villages located on the island, and a small school which you can visit and interact with the "delightful". children. To hear them sing is like listening to a choir of angels ... they touch your heart!! The beaches are amazing, and there are three in and around the resort, in close proximity. Many Island Resorts around, only have one main beach. The ocean is warm, clear, and there is a reef enclosing it, bringing gorgeous, colourful fish in close to shore. I was told by another visitor who had done her research, that the snorkelling was the best to find for children, and adults alike!! And water activities abound; there are diving excursions, fishing, and leisure trips, and any number of craft one can hire out. My friends and I went on the banana boat this time(thrilling!!) And we kayaked, and sailed the hobby cat(with a lot of laughter, and near crashes!) I love the fact that one is not restricted to the resort and have to dine at the restaurants exclusively. While the food and entertainment are very good, It is more enjoyable to have other options as well! There are two Backpacker resorts nearby and this added another dimension to our stay. We met some lovely, and interesting people from all over the world, when we dined there, and joined in the fun activities ... hi Shirley, Pete and staff at Ratu Kini!! And Ravi(chef,) at Mana Lagoon is a great guy!! There is so much to do on Mana island if one wants. I enjoy the balance of having fun things to do, or simply relaxing under a coconut palm, watching others at play, and taking in the heavenly view. I am never bored on Mana, and each visit has brought new experiences, and delightful new people into my life ... I am very grateful to have found this wonderful place!!
